HRH…

Not since Princess Diana have we seen such a brilliant smile and, in my opinion, style come out of the Royal Family. HRH The Duchess of Cambridge (formerly known simply as Kate Middleton) exudes just that. She has an elegant way about her that comes across in every single picture (that I’ve seen anyway) Below she poses for British Vogue on the cover of their 100th year anniversary issue.

planning ahead…

The long term forecast is good. It has me daydreaming of ice cream al fresco, open-toe sandals, and light breezy blouses. Luckily, with all the sales currently on I can afford to shop for everything my heart desires without any collateral damage at all (to my bank account). I just love finds like this very chic and stylish sleeveless blouse from H&M.com. I especially love the price!

cardigan…

I am aware that the cardigan has somehow fallen out of style in the past few years, This is precisely why I am thrilled to see it’s comeback. I mean what’s not to love about it? I can throw it over almost any outfit in this transitional weather, or on a cool summer evening. But really, why not build a whole outfit around a terrific cardigan. I adore this one below at madewell.com…

This one or this one are just as great

floral dress…

Although I love the soft flowing floral dresses this spring, this seems to be channeling Elaine from Seinfeld to me. I do love the motto jacket over the soft floral dress, I’m just not that into the white ankle socks with the flat loafers. I prefer it with a high heel strappy sandal or a knee-high leather boot either flat or heeled. But, she pulls it off beautifully…

NY fashion week rtw fall 2016 street…

I love to pour over the literally thousands of street pics each fashion season during the shows. With all the immensely talented photographers there, we don’t actually have to be. Here are but a very few of what I thought were interesting. I’m not going to say favourites because there are just too many to post if I were to post my favourites.
